100 = Platinum (Masterpieces)
90 = Gold (Incredible Films)
80 = Silver (Fantastic Films)
70 = Bronze (Great Films)
60 = Canon (Good Films that deserve to be remembered. Ones that show you the scope of a director, genre etc.)
50 = Peculiars (Not middling. Good films that just happened to miss a few marks. Guilty pleasures I don't fin guilty. Oddities. Perversities. Things that are more likely to tell you what cinema is that a respectable "A-film".)
40 = Average (You laugh, you guage with the story etc., but once you leave the theatre the gaping flaws are obvious)
30 = Per Usual (Dull, usually unoriginal films. Award winning films that state the complete obvious. Overrated genre films. Duds and failed movies that give you nothing of real interest.)
20 = Bad (Dull films that are legitimately poor in quality)
10 = Worthless (My own Seven Gates of Hell of the most loathsome films I've seen)
Films can only be added to Platinum status if I've seen them twice or more. Any film can go up or down in the listings on multiple watches. Recommendations and films you feel I've dismissed to hastily can be suggested for me to see.
|80 T8||The Shout (1978) - Oct 25, 2010
"A strange and bizarre film, well adapted from a Robert Graves short story. The acting is great, the cinematography is striking, and the sound, which would have been terrible in another film and is mostly done in post-production, works here and makes the film even more unsettling. A hidden gem from my country."
|30 T1||Film in Which There Appear Edge Lettering, Sprocket Holes, Dirt Particles, Etc. (1966) - Oct 21, 2010
"The problem with certain sorts of experiments like this is that they really should be installation pieces you can watch as little or as much as you want instead of being forced to watch it all. Only in a few cases would this sort of thing work, which this does not and ends up taking an interesting idea and not doing anything of interest with it."
